Show Our Love


For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. (John 13:15)

  • It is easier and faster to tell others what to do.
     
  • Showing others how to do require time and effort.
     
  • In teaching, it is easier to tell students what is wrong with what they did.
     
  • It is more difficult to show them how to do it right.
     
  • But the latter is more effective.
     
  • For many years, the Jewish people had only the law to tell them what to do and what not to do.
     
  • But then came Jesus Christ.
     
  • He showed them how to live the life God had been telling them about all along.
     
  • Jesus didn’t just say, “Be humble”; He humbled Himself.
     
  • Jesus didn’t just say, “Forgive others”; He forgave us.
     
  • Jesus didn’t just say, “Love God and your neighbors”; He demonstrated love by His actions.
     
  • Christ’s perfect example of love shows us how great God’s love is for us.
     
  • It also shows us how we are to show His love to others.
     
  • Love is God’s will in action.
     
  • Let us show our love than talking so much about it.
